It was a short week but students continued to work hard. Both classes presented their first persuasive writing piece to the class on fracking. All students have received their rubric, please ensure you sign and return it to school. We moved on to discussing National Parks. Canada has 42 National Parks, 5 of which are in Alberta. Wood Buffalo, Elk Island, Banff, Jasper and Waterton have unique and varied features and are located throughout the province. Grade 4's did some writing on their understanding of the parks as well as their importance. Next week, they will write their second persuasive writing piece in relation to their learning about National Parks.
Remember that on Monday, November 20, students have a quiz on natural resources. They study guide was sent home on Monday, November 13 but can also be found below.
Mr. Baker and I are looking forward to meeting you at Parent Teacher Interviews and hope that you enjoy your long weekend!
